xxx30 Connection record published with different data than doc record

  • Article Type: General
  • Product: Aleph
  • Product Version: 20

Description:
Brief workflow:

(1)

- Gui Circ => Course Doc List => “Catalog New”
- New record is created in USM30 + attached to CR
- In addition to a new record: “connector” record is also created in USM30
Reminder: “connector” record contains SID (link) to a “physical” record
- Both –physical and connector records – are processed by ue_01 and ue_21
- The z00p records with the STATUS = NEW are created for “physical” and “connector”

(2)
- “Physical” record is *updated* via the gui catalog
- It’s processed by ue_01 and ue_21
- The z00p STATUS changed to UPDATED

- publish-06 retrieves both records – “physical” and “connector”

- The problem is that “connector” does not contain updated fields from a “physical” record


(3)
- Only if a “connector” re-saved to the server and the z00p STATUS changed to UPDATED, publish-06 outputs “connector” with updated fields.

Do you think that extra step – re-saving “connector” in order to update the z00p record – is an enhancement request or bug?

On the other hand, the z00p records are updated for BIBs if changes are done to items and holdings. We don’t have to re-send BIBs to the server every time items are updated, right?

Complete Scenario attached.

Resolution:
You do *not need* a z00p for the connection record. Rather than trying to keep it updated, you should be *excluding* it.
I will show you how this has been done at ABC University.

Here's an ABC30 doc record 000062606, with an "SID L $$aABC30-000000009 ..." connection record:

Since the z00p for 000062606 has all of the necessary fields (see further below), ABC prevents the 000000009 connection record from being published by this entry in the abc30 tab_publish:

! 1 2 3 4 5
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PRIMO-COURSE ABC30PRIMOBIG N PR30 MARC_XML

This entry is saying that the nuy30 records must be part of the ABC30PRIMOBIG base in order to be included in the PRIMO-COURSE publishing set.

And this is the tab_base.eng entry:

ABC30PRIMOBIG ABC CR Primo Test ABC30 N wcn=(BOBST
* or TNS* or CU or NYSID)

And this is the tab11_word line:
CNO 01 WCN

Thus, only the xxx30 doc records which have CNO fields are included and connection records are excluded from the z00p:

abc50@ALEPH20> select Z00P_PTR from z00p where Z00P_LIBRARY = 'ABC30' and Z00P_DOC_NUMBER = '000000009';
no rows selected

abc50@ALEPH20> select Z00P_PTR from z00p where Z00P_LIBRARY = 'ABC30' and Z00P_DOC_NUMBER = '000062606';
**** Hit return to continue ****
Z00P_PTR <etc.>

Note: Your course numbers are no doubt different than ABC University's and will require a different base. See KB 16384-29714 in regard to this issue.

After running p_manage_01, as a test to make sure that the base you are creating for the CNO field is working, you should do util h/1/10. If it shows "NEGATIVE BASE" for your new base, it is not working.

When it *is* working, you should run p_publish_05, p_publish_04, and p_publish_06 to re-publish the records for this library.
